We are looking forward, cheering like Tifosi, to Sunday's final Monument... Il Lombardia!

This great Italian Monument is nicknamed, the Classica delle Foglie Morte (the Classic of the falling leaves). This will be the 109th edition favored for the punchy climbers. The Tifosi (the cycling mad fans) will be cheering their heroes on the epic climbs: Madonna del Ghisallo and the incredibly steep Muro di Sormano (1.7km, max grade: 25%)...

We'll be cheering like Tifosi!

La Fabrica Girona: Our connection has never been closer.

Words to live by...
'Life is too short for Bad Coffee.'

La Fabrica Girona Spain is far away from Vancouver. In a way, our connection has never been closer.

Both cities share the love for the bicycle, that's where it stops. The cycling culture is deeply rooted in Spain, made famous by the many pro cyclists that live there. Now, two expats are helping bring coffee culture to Girona... Amber and Christian Meier.

They are a popular couple and have numerous articles written on their unique business. Christian is a pro rider for Orica GreenEDGE and coffee aficionado. A while ago, he sent us a email that they were about to open a cycling theme cafe and expressed keen interest to sell our cycling caps. We couldn't be happier. We regularly follow Orica GreenEDGE especially the exploits of Christian and Sven Tuft.

After a few emails back and forth we have made arrangements to now have our cycling caps in their cycling theme cafe in Girona, Spain!

We're hopeful to, one day,  journey over to Girona to meet them, enjoy their coffee and personally deliver some more of our caps!
